What we offer 

A Thurrock-based advocacy service, with local knowledge. We combine advocacy with active support such as help with forms, making phone calls and signposting. 

We deliver local solutions by facilitating peer advocacy and self- advocacy, by empowering people to speak up for themselves and to build support networks for the individual so advocacy support is used appropriately. 

We support people to build confidence and resilience through peer and citizen advocacy and provide support to people attending local groups and forums. 

We also offer Advocacy under the Care Act 2014. This means that we provide support to people to help with understanding Direct Payments / social care assessments / reviews / Safeguarding in situations where a person has substantial difficulty and where there isn’t an appropriate person.
